A £27 million museum by the Australian firm behind Melbourne’s Federation Square has opened in Bristol today.
M Shed, designed by Lab Architecture, is housed in the restored 1950s transit sheds at Princes Wharf, close to the SS Great Britain.
The museum, created to celebrate Bristol’s impact on the UK and the rest of the world, contains three permanent galleries and a glazed rooftop extension.
It will feature 3,000 exhibits as well as workshops, learning suite, café, book and gift shop and a functioning train shed.
